    The whole point of the school changing the timetable temporarily is supposidley so year 11 students get some more english and maths lesson's to revise for their GCSE's. However this is still unacceptable as staff have had not been informed and have not had enough time to plan for this.

    Bizarre. The schools I've been to are mostly 1 weekers, with the odd exception of one or two being two weekers.

    Probably a LEA driven thing

    Within the 2 week temporary timetable both weeks will have lesson's at different times. The two timetables are completely different from each other i.e the 1st week on the monday 1st lesson will be science but on the 2nd week the 1st lesson on the monday will be Maths. After these two weeks the temporary timetable should go back to normal, however it is the fact that staff have had no notice that these temporary changes were being put in place.

    We've been running a two week timetable here for yonks (well at least the 5 years I've been there). It is pretty much set in stone from September, although not all secondary schools in Portsmouth work on a 2 week schedule.

    I'm an assistant timetabler and one week is enough thank you! I can't believe your timetabler has agreed to this though, it is a long and difficult job and takes up a lot of their time before and after the timetable goes live. Ours took the whole of September to properly settle down and we are still making changes now ("Hey you know my classes for my subject? I am changing one to another qualifications board even though it's October and I never told you last year..." ).
